Voice-enabling Microsoft Teams to complete the remote working set-up

Teams is invaluable for remote working. Yet businesses are asking how best to connect existing telephony with Microsoft Teams.

The rise in remote working has accelerated the take-up of Microsoft Teams. With the pandemic, businesses of all sizes adapted quickly, and Teams was the natural go-to. With Microsoft owning nearly four-fifths of the business desktop market, and with Teams offered as part of the Office 365 suite, it was a tool many already had.

Teams facilitates collaboration and provides visibility of real-time presence, invaluable for remote working. Yet, one of the areas where Microsoft Teams falls short is in calling and PBX connections.

To complete the working from home (WFH) set-up, businesses commonly ask their Voice Telco and IT service providers how best to connect existing telephony with Microsoft Teams. Businesses often need to leverage the feature-rich functionality of their existing PBX. They do not want to rip and replace. They also want to avoid the disruption of having to port numbers.

Voice, Telecom, and IT service providers need solutions that quickly and easily meet the remote-working demands of their customers. Delivering continuity of service in these challenging times is key. Now is not the time to implement complex, time-consuming projects.

Sold through channel partners, Call2Teams connects on-premises customer calling solutions to the Microsoft Teams environment.

“Microsoft Teams is becoming the go-to solution for collaboration these days. However, the PBX offerings just haven’t been enough for today’s companies up to now.
